In the book “Cut” by Cathy Glass a 13 year old girl is not getting the love and desired attention she needs. I think that the people in a child's life impact them the most in growing up and making them an adult. Parents should help to shape who you become and how you view life. They shouldn't just leave to better themselves. I feel really bad for Dawn it's really sad whats shes going through and what she does because of how her mother raised her and how she treats her, It's really unfair to Dawn.
In “Choices” by Susan Kerslake and “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury, the authors suggest that a person can change based solely on their needs, and question their ability to stay loyal or betray. In “Choices” and “The Veldt” the comparison in what led to the betrayals is very similar, along with who betrayed the characters. In “Choices” Peggy, the main character, has a decision to make, and she ends up making one that is not in her best interest. Perhaps the wrong decision was made because “[She] only [has] a little while to make up her mind.” Similarly, in “The Veldt” the parents of George and Lydia, decided to raise their kids to grow up in a modern and technology based home because “Nothing is to good for [their] children.” Although Peggy and the parents were just thinking about the happiness of their loved ones, they did not think about how they would be affected by their decisions. Similarly, betrayal was caused to the characters because of decisions they had made beforehand and in a way those decisions led to betrayal.
The grandmother displaces her ideas that sitting like that (legs crossed) is an indication of an imminent doom that her granddaughter will face, just like how her daughter, and herself came to be.

The granddaughter as young as she is has her own eyes, budding paradigm and hope.

The author of “Two Kinds”, Amy Tan creates a touching story by making the mother a static protagonist because she tries to make her daughter into someone she’s not, puts pressure and emotional stress on the main character, and doesn’t accept her daughter for who she already is. Suyuan brings the majority of the conflict to the story. The mother brings conflict into the story when she attempts to make June into someone she is not after comparing her to other children that she sees on television. For example, in the third paragraph the author writes “We’d watch Shirley’s old movies on TV as though they were training films” (Tan, 471). That part of the story indicates that the mother is trying to train June into becoming just like the little girl seen on TV.
Instead, Beatrice had to deal with the confusion as she was clueless about what an inconclusive test meant, especially because her results were not how she expected it to be. She lost confidence in herself and wanted an answer for her true identity. At the choosing ceremony, Beatrice decides to join Dauntless in order to gain respect from others, but most importantly, for herself, which was an aspect that she did not have when she was in Abnegation. In Dauntless, she strove to gain respect from her instructors and friends despite being mocked by one of her competitors, Peter, played by Miles Teller. The importance of knowing one’s identity in this case is to avoid confusion, and to ensure that one has a positive self-esteem so that respect can be had for oneself.

Firstly, whenever Louise foreshadows her future, more of them tend to be events that she would not particularly enjoy. She deals with this by letting nature run its course, even though she would regret doing it. Once, she foreshadowed a conversation with her daughter, and at the moment, she thought, “I’m actually going to say that, aren’t I? God, somebody please shoot me.” By saying this, Louise is forcing herself to act upon an action she does not believe to be the best thing to do. Another example of this is when she thinks about her daughter getting injured by a certain bowl, while in the present she visits the store with Gary and she thinks, “I reached out and took the bowl from the shelf.
